Autumn is the time to take advantage of the flavors of the season, and you can’t talk about fall flavors without bringing up pumpkin. If you have extra, store in an airtight container and keep in the fridge to reheat and enjoy over the next 3–4 days. Or put it in the freezer to thaw and enjoy over the next 4–6 months.
